Quite a bit of this song is written for banjo and a little piano (I think) but I think 
sound pretty good on the guitar for chords. Please leave any questions, comment, or 
changes in a comment or something.

Intro: Bm A Bm A Em G6 Bm Asus2

Bm          Asus2
Get on with it
Bm                          Asus2
put off the fuss you chickenshit
Bm          Asus2
get on with it
Bm                        Asus2
can't you see its time to quit

Bm
I seen three men hangin' from a sycamore
Asus2
their bodies were stiff as a two by four
Em   Bm                                      Asus2
and their heads were tilted down towards the ground
Bm
and it ain't been long since they been up there
Asus2
that their bodies turned cold hangin' in that air
Bm                                                 Asus2
and they might have froze before that noose got to them


Interlude: Bm Asus2 Bm Asus2 Em G6 Asus2


Bm          Asus2
Get on with it
Bm                          Asus2
put off the fuss you chickenshit
Bm          Asus2
get on with it
Bm                        Asus2
can't you see its time to quit

Bm
old scratch has dealt us a dirty hand
Asus2
he had the look of a saint but the greed of a man
Bm                                                Asus2
and his face was worn and wrinkled like a leather book
              Bm
and if i put this revolver to my head
Asus2                               Bm                      Asus2
will god turn against me instead of taking pity on a broken man?

Bm           Asus2
get on with it. [X 4]

Couple of corrections for you.

I don't think they play an A major here I'm not sure exactly but its more like this:

second I don't think you have the chorus right. I think it's like this
Bm
I seen three men hangin' from a sycamore
A
their bodies were stiff as a two by four
*Em* *Bm*
and their heads were tilted down towards the ground
Bm
and it ain't been long since they been up there
A
that their bodies turned cold hangin' in that air
Em Bm
and they might have froze before that noose got to them

That seems to support the vocal melody better.
